In 1930s Los Angeles. Jack Parsons works as a janitor at a chemical factory by day, but, by night, he nurses a secret ambition: to build rockets that will take mankind to the moon.

I wasn't planning on watching this as I abhor anything related to the ridiculous occult and any notion of the supernatural. But the nascent rocketry aspects of the show are done well, and the periodness of the 1930s is captured nicely in places... right down to the man's complete disregard for his wife's orgasm - or lack there of as the case may be. Its shaping up to be kind of a mind over matter theme with the already deluded man acheiving what would be impossible had he not had the insane belief in his head that he could accomplish it. Fortune favors the bold. And sometimes, Fortune favors the idiotic and brave. There is of course no such thing as "fortune". The chienese rocket history / pulp comicbook is a nice thematic aspect as well. Very hero's journey. Bring on the naked virgin sacrifices !!!!

Not sure who the angel is supposed to be but the story is interesting. Rocket science mixed with occult. Certainly an odd mix. Characters are interesting. Set in the past is different.Will see where this show goes.
